Seven Shepherd Altar
The incredulous Thomas and below left the kneeling altar donor Johann Siebenhierter

Lieseregg is a district or a cadastral municipality in the municipality of Seeboden am Millstätter See in the Spittal an der Drau district in the Austrian state of Carinthia . This westernmost place on the sloping high plateau above the Millstätter See at the lower left end of the Nockberge is not far from the Spittal / Millstättersee junction of the Tauern Autobahn (A 10).

In the middle of an old weir system on the rock above a loop of the Lieser at 638 m above sea level is the parish church Mariae Himmelfahrt. The clustered village of Lieseregg, which used to be scattered , is now reduced to a church and rectory and has only one inhabitant, while the adjacent Kras has 165. A new district, the "Wohnpark Lieseregg" or the "Camping and Holiday Park Lieseregg" are named after the place, but belong to the district of Kras.


Lieseregg ( Slov. Jezerek ) first appeared in writing as Lisara around 957/993. In 1138 the place Lisere , 1188 Lisereke , is called the "Eck an der Lieser". The church, built in 975, is mentioned in a document from Freising Bishop Abraham (957–993). Around 1000 Lieseregg was owned by the Counts of Lurn , in 1138 it was elevated to a Catholic parish. In 1149, Lieseregg was inherited by the Archbishop of Salzburg . In 1506 Lieseregg was assigned to the Order of St. George Knights in Millstatt by the Pope . After its dissolution in 1568, the parish was incorporated with ten branches as part of the Millstatt district of the Gurk diocese . Little by little, Lieseregg lost its eight daughter churches to Treffling and Seeboden. Filial churches were the Laurentius Chapel and Michaels Chapel in Lieserhofen , the Wolfgang Chapel in Fratres, the Georg Chapel and Luzia Chapel in Altersberg, the Leonhard Chapel in Treffling, the Petrus Chapel in Tangern and the Jakobus Chapel in Techendorf (Seeboden).

The most important cultural monument of the church is a small Gothic winged altar from around 1500, the seven-shepherd or apostle altar in the south aisle. It is named after the Millstatt Grand Master of the Georg-Ritter-Order Johann Siebenhirter († 1508), presumably the founder. Both the coat of arms of the Order of St. George and that of Siebenhirter can be recognized. The center of the altar is a carved relief with the descent of the Holy Spirit , with Mary sitting in the circle of the twelve apostles . The four wing paintings represent the death of the Virgin Mary above, below the unbelieving Thomas , above right the doubting Peter walking across the water (fishing) and the sending of the apostles. The paintings are attributed to an unknown "Master of Lieseregg" who is also in Villach can be proven. Since the bottom is very similar to that of the altar in Großgmain , it could have been a painter from Salzburg. The outer wings contain images of the apostles Peter and Paul, including the evangelists Luke and John. There is a triangular attachment with carved tendrils, although the original attachment and predella are missing. The grotesque depiction of the figures is unique in Carinthia. While the faces are shown uniformly, rather narrowly in the same size, the physical proportions and the posture do not correspond to the natural anatomy.

The center of the high altar from the middle of the 18th century is a copy of the Marian Voyage of Mary by Peter Paul Rubens by the Obervellach painter Barthel from 1810. The green frame with attached putti, silver clouds and a trinity group is exceptionally narrow. The substructure is a three-zone altar with reliquaries and two angel figures, the central area being designed as a protruding tabernacle (1816) with gilded doors and a silver communion relief (18th century). On the sides the apostles of St. Peter with key and cross and St. Paul with a book and a sword (around 1700).

Travel description from 1825

In August 1825, the Viennese alpinist and court chamber clerk Josef Kyselak (1798–1831) stopped by Liseregg on his Austrian hike . While he only touches the villages on the lake, today's Seeboden, with one sentence, Lieseregg is devoted to a whole section in which he describes the life of ordinary people in great detail: "The village is pretty spread out, it was already night, I had to So ask about the inn in some apartment. The rattle of mills lured me across fields to the left, some huts were already closed, but I heard voices next door - opening the door and closing it again was one thing; smoke, steam and fire billowed up in the house A man called out to me, I took one of the edges and went once more to this hellish pool. In the middle of the black room around a clay hearth planted with dishes, whereupon the fire blazed up, stood seven people, the men smoking tobacco, the women stoking sticks, and a little pig in the corner grunted applause, and the smoke, which was not satisfied to leave the little roof hole, swirled about three feet from the floor in the room. The numerous air holes in the torn wooden wall, however, and the window openings, which were poorly protected with paper and broken glass, served as just as many chimneys to which the door, which was a few inches too small towards its opening, gave a proper draft. On the bumpy, loamy floor stood a few sheds with straw, the alleged bedsteads of the palace. Such apartments, which the farmer assigns to his servants or poor families commonly own, are not uncommon in Carinthia. What wonder! when they often have a sad influence on the physical character of the lower classes! These huts, which are no good for the summer, what can they be in the winter? "
